DFIT interpretation has been a theme of the work that we’ve done within ResFrac. Our collaborative 2018 Industry Study, which culminated in one of the ‘Best of URTeC’ papers in
Apache used ResFrac to tightly constrain their Midland Basin pad models. Apache is a leader in gathering and interpreting advanced diagnostics. In SPE-204172, Shahri et al., describe the detailed calibrations possible with ResFrac and cross-well engineered fiber from Silixa. ResFrac outputs the full stress and strain tensors at any location in the model. These data can be used to directly compare to the strain rate data gathered from cross-well fiber-optic monitoring.

Sama Morsy presents her 2021 paper with Chevron on Unconventional Optimized Strategy Development Workflow, discussing completion design optimization due to depletion and also the preloading process to safeguard against damage to parent and child wells due to depletion and offset fracturing. She also highlights additional modeling capabilities with ResFrac and how ResFrac can be used for the optimal evaluation of completion designs.
